Dell Vostro 1500 - 8600 GT to TV

Hey,

i think i ve allready read all posts about this topic but seems to me it was never really solved.

Got the Dell Vostro 1500 with the 8600GT and obiously want to connect it with my TV.  I haven t had any problems connecting it with my old pc, so i m pretty sure the problem can t be the cable, tv or the adapter.

My installed drivers are the 173730 for the grafic card and the bios is version A05.

If you need any other information on my system please tell me. 

Any help ist appreciated.

 

Thanks

What type of video input are you using on your TV, S-video, composite video or component video?

Hi everyone,

I allready did everything that is described on the documentation.

So this doesn´t work for me.

As a connection im using a component video cable. But i don´t plug it directly in my tv, i m going in my av receiver an from there to the tv.

Shouldn´t make any difference because i did not change anything on that, just the pc is  different.

I have a Dell component video adapter that works fine with my Inspiron 1520 and its NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT video card.

It is possible that the pin connections of the S=video TV-out socket on your Vostro 1500 are different from those on your other computer. Is your other computer a Dell?

Re: Dell Vostro 1500 - 8600 GT to TV

the other computer was built on my own. so no its not a dell.

the grafic card was a ati radeon and the tv out socket looks like the one on my vostro.

So this shouldn t be the problem. I also changed the adapter which is plugged in my vostro but still no signal.

Could you please give me a link to your Dell component video adapter? I really don t know what else to do, any suggestions?

The adaptor cable is definitely the cause of your problem. Here is the link but you need to check with Dell as to the correct version for the Vostro 1500 with NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT video card.

The adapter for the Vostro 1400 has the manufacturer part #: PG383. Mine for the Inspiron 1500 has the manufacturer part #: PG382. Best to check with Dell service support (spare parts) as I did. Dell Sales Support didn’t know anything about this subject.
